 Comodo Internet Security Premium v 8.2.0.4591
Keep hackers locked firmly out of your PC

Comodo Internet Security Premium 8 is a collection of powerful tools which aims to keep your PC safe from even the very latest in malware threats.

The suite includes a strong antivirus engine and smart firewall. Comodo's "Defense+" system monitors program activities, looking for malware-like behaviour. The virtual desktop provides an isolated environment where you can run programs, or browse the web, without any risk to your system. And URL filtering keeps you safe by blocking access to malicious sites.

Most of this works entirely automatically, and so novice users can simply carry on using their PC just as they did before.

But if you need more control, Comodo Internet Security Premium has plenty to explore. You can monitor process activity in an extended Task Manager, or Comodo's Killswitch; there's a configurable sandbox for running suspect applications; a versatile Host Intrusion Protection System helps you define exactly what programs can (and can't) do on your system, and a host of settings and options ensure the program works exactly as you'd like.

New features this time include an auto-sandboxing policy, which by default keeps dubious programs isolated from your PC.

If this doesn't suit your needs, no problem: it's now possible to set up your own auto-sandboxing rules, using parameters like file reputation and origin.

Comodo Internet Security 8 now takes advantage of hardware virtualisation when available, allowing the program to operate at the hypervisor level. An improved Viruscope makes it easier to monitor your system for unwanted applications. Comodo Internet Security logs events to the Windows Event Logs, useful when you're troubleshooting.

This all comes packaged in a flat-look interface, which has also been redesigned to simplify navigation.

Note that the Premium version is free. You can upgrade to Pro, Complete and Plus versions, with additional functionality such as a virus guarantee and much more.

What's new in build 8.2.0?

- After CIS installations you will be directed to a landing page where you will find the details of the product and the benefits of the features.  
- In case you need you will be able to open Geekbuddy chat window directly on malware found notification window.
- CIS Firewall doesn't recognize safe applications with short-format path (e.g. \progra~1\)
- Diagnostics failed after update windows from Win 8.1 to Win 10
- Chromodo UAC and update offer appear during CIS installation
- Malicious and unrecognized file does not run in Sandbox from VTRoot folder
- Sandbox does not block malicious launched from 'Quarantine'
- CIS/CES COM components keys should be removed from registry after installation
- Incorrect displaying name in 'FW Application Rules' after removing application via "IOBit Uninstaller"
- ASE is freezes after launch 'Purge' with empty rule

Verdict:

Comodo 8 isn't a mjaor upgrade, but the package still has plenty of security tools to explore, and experts will appreciate the new sandboxing flexibility.

The best in both free and paid category. The UI of 6 needs some getting used to but other wise under the hood, rock solid engine. Kudos to Comodo team.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
